This German-Yugoslav coproduction first surfaced in 1960 under the title Ein Toter Hing Im Netz. Egyptian leading man Alex D'Arcy plays a talent agent who escorts seven gorgeous chorus girls to a club date in Singapore. En route, their plane crash-lands in the ocean. D'Arcy and the girls make their way to a seemingly idyllic island, where they come across a huge spider's web-and the dessicated body of a scientist. The giant spider sinks its teeth in D'Arcy, turning the poor fellow into a werewolf! Then the fun begins, depending upon your idea of fun. Released in America to general distinterest in 1962, It's Hot in Paradise fared no better a few years later, when it was recut and retitled Horrors of Spider Island.

Only the wonderfully goofy crew of the Mystery Science Theatre 3000 Satellite of Love could make this Spaghetti Flick worth watching. The MST3K guys had a ball doing what they do best, ripping this ridiculously cheesy movie apart. Unfortunately THIS is not the MST3K version. It's just the Spider Island with its new inhabitants. Obviously "beautiful" Italian women in this movie are a far cry from Italy's Gina Lolabrigita and Sophia Loren. They're older, more worn-out, and fatter than the real good actresses. But then no one else of substance would do this. One woman's accent changes rapidly throughout the movie. The most hilarious part of the movie is when the jet carrying all the women and their male manager CATCHES FIRE AND DIVE BOMBS into the sea!! The movie switches scenes between the women screaming and the flaming jet going down. Then in the next scene they are on a life raft"?" going to shore. Not a scratch. All bodies intact. They're even wearing their shoes and carrying handbags!! Well, not to give away the extremely intricate plot and shocking climax "because there aren't any", the movie finally does end.

This is another blue light special in the B-Movie world. The plot is simple, an agency looking for a troupe of dancers for a show. They put a troup together and it's off to singapore on a flight going through a typhoon. Well, their B-17 crashes(Yes, B-17) into the sea, Nose first. Just about everyone on board survives. All the Sexy girls and their Male manager, a.k.a The luckiest man alive. They wind up in a life raft, find an island and then find a cabin where a scientist has been staying, or in this case, Stuck in a web. Then the male manager can't take being with all these beauties and runs off and gets bit by a spider. He turns into some type of freak, wierwolf looking monster. Then, two guys show up who claim to be working with the professor. They come well equiped for their stay, Water, Packs of butts and a case of whiskey. Eventually, they trip over the gals who have found one girl dead and now have their manager missing. One thing leads to another and there is a one heck of a party going on. One of the fellas seems to be planning to marry one of the dancers he met just a few hours before. But then..You have to buy this voice dubbed special for yourself as by now your nodding off. It's campy fun with a twist debauchery. Enjoy! psmsmallengines@hotmail.com

O.K., Plot, a guy is on a plane with a bunch of buxom bims who do little more than look good.(Trust me, they can't act) The plane crashes, and he and the bims survive. Well, there's a spider running around on the island,(Along with the Bims) we see a huge spider web that winds up snagging a doctor who made them that big. The poor guy is is stranded with these women evetually get's off'd by the spider. I have left a lot out because it's just such a, Uh, er,.... Enertaining movie! I dont want to ruin it for you. Think of it like Plan 9 from Outer space on Steroids type of movie. Like I always suggest, buy this movie from Barnes and Noble and you will be glad you did. If the MST 3K version was available for this, I would say buy that because it will leave you on the floor laughing. But it's not too hard of a movie to start cracking your own jokes at.
